Amma has been designing leather accessories since 2003, back then the brand focused largely on bags, purses and belts with great success.
In 2008, with the intention of broadening the collection Amma embarked on a new journey to discover the possibilities of working with leather, this is how Amma was introduced to moulding leather.
After training with two of the best leather workers in the world, Neil MacGregor and Valerie Micheals Amma developed her own method of applying this traditional craft skill by combining it with modern beading techniques and experimenting with surface finishes to create pieces that were challenging and provoking.
Amma has recently designed an range of jewellery exclusively for Jigsaw which is available from select stores across London and the UK.
Amma followed her ambition, determined to do things her way, this is what she believes in and is the focus for her brand.
Born in Ghana, then moving to the UK, Amma Gyan combines both cultures to illustrate the diversity and glamour of London, with the vibrancy and richness of West Africa. Her style stems from her love of nature, inspired by art and cutting edge fashion.
